  • Analysis: Alexander Dombos
  • Code: Fei Yuan
  • Parameter: Heiko Möller


  • Perform a simulation of a supernova explosion near the Solar system (at, say, 10 parsec) using the VH1 hydrodynamics solver.
  • Explore the effects of the explosion (in particular, near the orbit of the Earth) and how they vary depending on the energy of the supernova (relative to the force of the Solar wind), proximity, and density.


  • [X] Simulate simple blast wave in 1D.
  • [X] Simulate dense material in 1D (boring).
  • [X] Simulate blast wave on dense material in 1D.
  • [X] Simulate plane blast wave on dense sphere in 2D.
  • [X] Simulate solar wind in 1D / 2D.
  • [ ] Simulate a spherical blast wave (from a distant source) in 2D.
  • [ ] Explore parameters (solar wind strength, explosion energy, etc).
  • more to come…
